Biographical Essay (by Digby Smith)
Franz Anton Freiherr von Elsnitz was born on 28 September 1746 in Vienna. On 1 June 1763, he entered Infantry Regiment N°59 "Daun" and – the same year – was transferred to the First Arcieren Life Guard as Oberleutnant. In 1766, he was transferred to a Cuirassier Regiment, in which, in 1775, he rose to captain and in 1786, to major. In 1790, he became Oberstleutnant, and in 1792, Oberst, in the Chevauxleger Regiment N°18. He fought in the War of the Bavarian Succession (1778/79) and in the wars against the Turks (1787-1790). In the autumn of 1789, he took part in the siege of Belgrade.
In 1793, he went with his regiment to Prinz Friedrich Josias von Sachsen-Coburg-Saalfeld's army in the Austrian Netherlands. He fought at Neerwinden on 18 March, Caesar's Camp (7 August), Cysoing (28 August) and at the siege of Dunkirk (24 August-8 September). In 1794, he fought at the siege of Landrecies (April), Turcoing (May), Tournai (22 May) and in the 2nd battle of Fleurus on 26 June. In 1795, he and his regiment fought on the middle and upper Rhine. He was distinguished in the pursuit of the French after their defeat at Mainz on 23 October and on 13 November at Tellheim. On 4 March 1796, he was promoted to Generalmajor. In this year, he served in Germany under Erzherzog Carl and General Wartensleben in the Army of the Lower Rhine. He participate in the battle of Würzburg as commander of a large, mixed brigade to the north of the battlefield. After Carl's victory at Würzburg, Elsnitz led the pursuit of the beaten French and was again distinguished in the clash at Giessen on 16-17 September. In 1799, he was again distinguished at Verona on 26 and 30 March and at Mantua on 18 May and 7 August. He had also commanded the Austrians at the defeat of Pastrengo on 26 March 1799. On 2 October 1799, Elsnitz was promoted to Feldmarschalleutnant and served in Italy in FML Keim's division of Kray's army. The brigades of Elsnitz and Gottesheim were used to work on the defences of Pastrengo since mid-March. In early 1800 he commanded a division in Vado, northern Italy, where defeated GdD Louis-Gabriel Suchet at San Giacomo on he on 12 April. At the end of May he was on the Var River. He then commanded the cavalry division in FML Hadik's Main Column at Marengo on 14 June. He retired at the end of 1809 and died on 31 December 1825 in Enzersdorf (Lower Austria).

Biographical Essay (by Digby Smith)
Johann Karl Eugen Graf zu Erbach-Schönberg was promoted to Generalmajor in 1783, and Feldmarschalleutant in 1789. In the 1792 campaign, he commanded part of Clerfayt's corps in Luxemburg. In mid-May, his division was deployed along the upper Rhine, between Strassburg and Basle. At the end of the year, he was back in Luxemburg. In 1795 he commanded the garrison in Düsseldorf and was forced out with the loss of all his artillery by the French under GdD Jean-Etienne Championnet on 6 September. He joined forces with the Prinz von Württemberg, but they were both defeated again at Uckerath on 13 September. On 4 March 1796 he was promoted to FZM.
